    Why would they want to even bother with Appletalk? They go after the sites that do this. Cant wait to see it. I'll have to wait and see if ABC are fast enough to air it before its on my HDD otherwise its their OWN fault!

    Last year didnt have the bandwidth... this year... I do... but I don't think I'll be d'ling it... Of course, if the ABC are still umming and erring about it in 6-8 weeks from now... that may change.

    K9 does make a return this series. Episode 3, School Reunion, will have both K9 and Sarah-Jane Smith.

    I saw confidential S02-01 and it blew me away...this series should be interesting, despite the change of Doctor. Bringing back Sarah-Jane and K9 were brilliant ideas.

    Not the best of episodes but when we're saying that of this quality it's very good news indeed. Just a shame my favourite torrent site isn't carrying it.

    I watched it last night. Interesting to say the least. David Tennant plays a different doctor, more serious than Chris Eccleston, yet on par with my expectations. K9 will be a great nostalgia trip. I wonder if he will be the Radio Controlled, or computerised?

    Don't forget that the BBC site has a free commentary to download (20mb MP3 file).

    I thought the pre-credits bit was a bit more touching than I'd normally attribute to the series - I'm going all soppy. The rest was generally good, though the trailer for Tooth & Claw (ep 2) looked ace.

    I'm off to the US in a couple of weeks, and I've been dvd-er-izing my DW videos so that I've got stuff to watch... I've managed to get all the available Hartnell stuff, about half of which I've never seen before. That's my consolation for flying off to somewhere I'm not going to be able to watch the new series in...

    From the promo K9 looks like he is "original", as in he looks like a flesh and steel prop on set, but some of his moves look "enhanced". I dont imagine you'll hear his characteristic motor whirring as he moves somehow.

    Its not K9 unless he has his motor. Any news on the Voice Actor?

    I keep getting the feeling, just after watching the Xmas Invasion, that the episodes start out really well, but die towards the end. Maybe it's just too laughably easy for the Doctor to defeat the aliens sometimes. There's not enough of the real terror of the old DW and the characters are all painfully shallow. Mind you, it's hard not to say that about the old series sometimes.

    Paxton, they've got John Leeson back to do K9's voice (as they should).

    Currawong... I just hate the sonic screwdriver... We need JNT's ghost to come back and destroy it again. The original series certainly had its moments with "Oh I just pushed this button here and the baddy died... I'll explain later...", but more often than not they delivered better quality endings. Of course, fitting a good story into 40 minutes with a non-rushed ending isn't easy... even with the faster pace of "modern" tv compared to the 60's/70's...
